    I don't understand why the Hi-Rez staff do not just explain why they do nothing. For the community speaks a LOT of this problem and it just never put a topic on the forum.

    I'm going to be honest. I'd probably purposefully tank my MMR to get faster matchmaking times if this was the case.

    There are more bad players than good ones. So I'd just stop playing any gods I'm good with so my MMR lowers enough that I don't have to wait 15 freaking minutes for a match.

    Shouldn't need to open up a game of solitaire while queuing to alleviate the boredom of long queue times.

    Actually, more likely than not if I end up needing to wait 15 minutes for a match I'll just play LoL instead.

    Off topic: Why are there soooo many bad supports? fuck. it's easy and really fun granted you have a team who knows how to follow up on an ymir freeze or sylva ult, which I'm pretty sure my grandmother could do (press buttons)

    On topic: The only problem I see with starting everyone in b5 is that people can be carried easily out of it. I've been carried and done my fair share of carrying (mid lane usually) and that's the way it all works in lower level league. People could get out of where they belong and tank their elo from losing stuff because they're going with people who are better than them.

    Of course,

    what I'm saying is that someone who belongs in bronze 1 could be carried to gold potentially, and then lose a shit ton of ELO getting dropped back to bronze.

    Because nobody wants to play support? It's boring, reliant on your team of randoms, and you get blamed for your ADC's failures, and then get blamed for the loss because you died peeling for people and ended up underleveled with a bad KDA ratio.

    LoL got around this issue by giving a lot of the characters meant to be support's really badass skillsets like Thresh or Leona, and a lot of variety to the role. Strife did it even better by essentially making the support just another laner (Strife doesn't really have dedicated roles to begin with). Smite's support role is very inflexible, methodical, and quite frankly doesn't really make you feel like a badass. Hence nobody wants to support aside from a few oddballs.

    That being said. I like Sobek and Athena, and like playing Belonna and Fenrir in the support role. I just like playing characters I can carry my ungrateful team with a little more.

    I'm glad I stay out of league conquest.

    I'd hate to be stuck in the cancer that you guys end up in.
    Wow...
